Help Regarding PowerApp Application

All, 

I am developing an application with offline functionality for my company which digitalize a form with about 200 columns. I am stuck on two of the requirements.They are- 

 

1) To create an incremental unique key, concatenated with location code.As the backend is in sharepoint list and considering the application to work in both online and offline scenario, can anyone suggest the best way to achieve this task. Eg. Lets assume application has two location i.e. "A" and "B", so first record for "A" should be "A1" and first record for "B" should be "B1" and so on.

 

2) The user wants to save some of the records in collection which they want to edit a couple of time before making the final submission. For this case, Do I need to create new screens to show records to the user before they can edit it considering there can be upto 200 columns which needs to be edited ?  Can anyone suggest the best way on how to fulfill this requirements ?

 

Regards,

Shay

Re: Help Regarding PowerApp Application

Hi @Shay ,

1)Do you want to create an index column?

If so, I suggest you try ForAll, Patch, CoutRows function to make it.

here's a similar issue for your reference:

2)Do you want to display the records that the users may want to edit?

If so, here are some  controls that you could choose:

data table, gallery, listbox

You could dispay the collection in one of the above control and then choose one record to edit.

These three controls all have "Selected" property.

Here are docs about them for your reference:
